Cadillac cts v updating navigation home
Cadillac’s CTS and CTS-V performance sedans for 2017 continue to go unchallenged by domestic makes while simultaneously giving the Germans fits.
From a set of powerful engine options to its Nurburgring-proven performance, the CTS outshines cars like the Audi A6 and Lexus GS, and pulls within spitting distance of the BMW 5 Series, including the legendary M5.
Cadillac's CUE infotainment system first debuted on the automaker's 2013 XTS, and despite attempting to emulate the functionality of a smartphone or tablet, fell just short.
Poor performance speeds and an ineffective touch interface hampered the system's success.
For the most part, CUE remains unchanged from the version we reviewed in the XTS, though Cadillac says that it has decreased touch response time, something that was a rather large problem in the initial version of the system.The 2017 Cadillac CTS sedan is brimming with luxury and technology features, and even the entry-level 4-cylinder model offers up a nice balance of features, power, fuel economy and price.Of course, the tire-smoking 640-horsepower supercharged CTS-V remains the crown jewel in the Cadillac crest, forever changing the way younger buyers view America’s oldest luxury-car manufacturer.All feature some type of twin-turbo or supercharged V8 engine, and all push horsepower into the stratosphere, in an era when automakers worldwide are generally downgrading V8s to lighter-weight, more powerful and more fuel-efficient V6s.In head-to-head match-ups, the CTS-V doesn't always dominate its V8-powered competitors, but it definitely stays in the race, thanks in part to its beefy 6.2-liter, supercharged V8 engine, which is based on the engine that drives the Corvette ZR1.
The Cadillac name still has a ways to go before it reaches the same cachet as BMW, Mercedes-Benz and Lexus, but it’s not far.
